Certainly among one of the more clever ideas I have seen out there. Using the power of Twitter to help others land a job does have a serious twist of logic to it to be sure. So comes the concept of JobDeck, from the folks over at TweetDeck..
Unlike other job sites however, this one runs on the Twitter backbone. I see this as a great marriage of social media and job hunting, as most job sites are a bit of a joke these days. In theory, one could begin building relationships before ever being called in for the interview.
As to whether or not this is something that has a lot of staying power, I am of the mind that it does. The fact of the matter is that people will always be looking for work. And it’s clear that this is the way to go about helping out those who are seeking employment.
